It didn't take long for Donte' Stallworth to find work.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Baltimore Ravens have signed the former Saints, Patriots and Browns wide receiver to a one-year, $900,000 contract that includes $300,000 worth of incentives.

Stallworth was reinstated by the NFL on February 7, then subsequently released by Cleveland, after being suspended for the entire 2009 season stemming from a DUI incident in Florida that resulted in the death of a 59-year-old pedestrian.

The 28-year-old signed a seven-year, $35 million contract with the Browns after losing Super Bowl XLII with the New England Patriots, but only caught 11 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown in 11 games with Cleveland in 2008.

Stallworth immediately upgrades a receiving corps that many believed had no outside explosiveness.
